    New Type of Combine Soldier -- Found!

    I've been closely examining the Aftermath screenshots released, and I came across something which caught my eye. I've brightened up a few of the screenshots, and discovered this symbol on the armour of one of the combine soldiers: This is interesting, as the Combine Soldiers in Half-Life...

    On the Crossbow...

    Whow... another thread brought back from the dead. Why do people keep doing this? Anyway, now that we're discussing crossbows again, I may as well add something: Anyone thought of this? How can the rebar be propelled, and fly properly in a straight line, if it has no fletching? I'd think that...

    Dog vs. Garg

    I know, and so was I. See the little ":P" at the end of my post above ^. I would not have put that there if I was making a serious anti-Angry Lawyer post. I would've put something like: :rolleyes: instead, if that were the case. Yep. Apparently, knowing how to code can help you own people...

    Gun ship,strider, look like alien to me!

    If they're from different worlds, then why do they all look the same? Beige skin, for instance. I think Synths consist of different species (striders, gunships etc), but they all come from the same race/planet - that explains why they all share similar appearances. And when I say "appearance"...

    Dog vs. Garg

    I think we're discussing a hypotehetical battle between the two characters here (based on what we've seen throughout the games), not an actual in-game version created with the Hammer Editor, and limited by the AI and Engine capabilities. :P

    Gun ship,strider, look like alien to me!

    You've pretty much answered your own question. Striders, Gunships, Dropships, Shield Scanners, Crab Synths and Mortar Synths all belong to a race called Synths. The Combine previously conquered the Synths, and then enhanced them with their technology through forceful evolution. Before they were...

    Half-life 2: Unnamed? What name would you give to it?

    How can the Combine strike back if they never attacked Earth previously? Anyway... Half-Life 2: A Free-Man and a Gentleman Half-Life 2: Freeheart Half-Life 2: The Airboat Diaries Half-Life 2: Goateeface (about Gordon's secret drug empire)

    First Black Mesa: Source images

    Yeah. It always bothered me how the m203 had no reloading animation too. :| It would've been so simple to animate: 1. Slide m203 barrel forward. 2. Insert grenade. 3. Slide barrel back. But no - instead the grenades just "magically" appear in the launcher.

    Half-life 2: Unnamed? What name would you give to it?

    highway 17 help

    Valve like making puzzles that show off the Source engine's capabilities, especially physics. Something to think about the next time you get stuck. :)

    Easter Eggs

    OMG MAJOR NEWS FLASH! Half-Life 1 manual, Gordon's letter: "Since you are unmarried and without dependants..." That picture is one of the developer's kid, Gordon doesn't have a family. :hmph:

    Yeah, Castro betrayed Che Guevara and turned Cuba into the shithole it is today. :|

    Favorite Default HL2DM Map?

    Hehe... it was at the top of the list. A little hard to miss. :cool: What do you mean? My thread did have a poll. I'm telling you, dude; the thread's are identical. :laugh:

    HL2:DM problems

    1) You can't really change that - especially if there's something like 10 people in the server. 2) I hate this too. I was killed in Overwatch yesterday because I got stuck in a doorway carrying one of those blue shelves with the gravity gun. I was such an easy target. I also hate it how the...

    God games?

    Aahh, Age of Mythology. :) That was good while it lasted, I even got the expansion pack... but I've deviated from the whole RTS genre now. I think Empire Earth II might get me back into it, though.
